is a wonderful thing….

or rather, it should be…as the mother of three children, our home is often a blur of basketball practices, time outs, cereal & dirty clothes….i do find myself a bit overwhelmed some days, but at the core of it i feel blessed to be raising three healthy kids…in fact, i cannot even imagine if one of my babies had a serious illness…and yet that is the reality for many families…photographer & loving mother SUZY CLEMENT deals with this reality every day…..her young daughter has a very rare disease called JUVENILE MYOSITIS….they are trying to find a cure…and right now JUVENILE MYTOSITIS is in the running to win $250,000 to help children with this rare disease….and they need help….so please go to this LINK and VOTE…and tell your friends…every childhood should be wonderful….this is a chance to help a child that needs a little more wonder & a little less pain…so hug the ones your love & remember good health is a very precious gift….help a child…find a cure…every vote helps…xoxo

for a woman, dressing on her wedding day is
something truly special….we all have little morning
rituals…a cup of coffee….a hot shower…our favorite
jeans & a list of errands….the ritual of dressing before
you commit your life to your sweetheart is second to
none…so allow yourself to drink it in….xoxoxoxo

how did this happen?

one minute i was cradling a perfect baby boy…..

and the next i find looking into the eyes of a little man….

he is through & through a boy….fiercely independent & strong….and yet oh so sensitive (i apologize my little son, for i think you got that from me)…he is surrounded by women, his sisters and myself…and is not always tolerant of our feminine ways….he insists i kiss & hug him way too much, and yet he melts into my arms every evening & still absently reaches for a single strand of my hair for comfort…..

in my heart he is still a baby boy….

and yet he keeps reminding me he’s not a baby….

so i try to let him go a little….

and yet when he sleeps he is, as ever my baby boy….

and so it goes on…he grows & changes….he is intelligent & funny…and soooo intense…believe me he gets his fair share of time outs….and yet i admire him…his little body full of grown up emotions….

i feel so lucky to be his mama….

and cannot wait to meet the man he’ll become….

xoxo

“I keep on fallin’ in and out of love with you
Sometimes I love you
Sometimes you make me blue
Sometimes I feel good
At times I feel used
Loving you darling
Makes me so confused

I keep on fallin’ in and out of love with you
I never loved someone the way that I loved you

Oh, Oh, I never felt this way
How do you give me so much pleasure
And cause me so much pain, yea yea
‘Cause when I think
I’m taking more than would a fool
And I start fallin’ back in love with you

I keep on fallin’ in and out of love with you
I never loved someone the way that I loved you

I’m fallin’
I’m fallin
fall, fall, fall, fall”
